Reasons to Choose Raspberry

Reasons to Choose Raspberry

One of our very favorite fruits to add to our tea blends is the small-but-mighty raspberry, and we use their leaves to add any extra healthy punch. Dr. Kristal says that raspberry leaves are a wonderful choice to maintain a healthy lifestyle, and what better way to enjoy it than with a cup of herbal tea?

"Raspberry leaves are perfect for all things concerning women," she adds. "It tones and strengthens the uterus while tightening the pelvic wall. Research supports the use of raspberry tea to support PMS symptoms and decrease the nausea and vomiting associated with pregnancy."

As always, if you are pregnant, consult your practitioner about the use of herbal supplements and teas. 

You'll find raspberry in two of our tea blends: raspberry/spearmint/strawberry and raspberry/lemongrass/chamomile/lime.  Order yours today or stop by our General Store for a sample! Health benefits aside, you might also indulge in a slice of Grandma's Lemon Loaf with one of these teas. It's a wonderful pairing, especially if you are trying to treat your family to something special during the holidays.

Keep Calm & Lemon Balm

Keep Calm & Lemon Balm

To build off of last week’s herb of the week, chamomile, we are focusing on lemon balm, an herb that has similar calming effects. If you are looking for something healthy to help you unwind at the end of a long day, lemon balm is the way to go. It’s been known to help people suffering from depression and anxiety, but it also helps you think a little quicker on your feet.

“Lemon balm strengthens your brain while lifting your mood,” explains Dr. Kristal. “It is great for reducing anxiety and nervousness while boosting cognitive function.”

So there you have it - an ideal tea to help you stay calm and focused. Whether you have a big exam coming up or you are simply trying to cope with the stress of life during a pandemic, lemon balm can be a big help.

Try it in our Lemon balm/mint/lavender tea blend  and see for yourself!
